Cost to Cure Estimates

During a PCA, an evaluation of the property is conducted to identify any existing or potential issues that might affect its structural integrity, safety, or functionality. Once these issues are identified, a cost-to-sure estimate is generated to quantify the financial outlay required to address these concerns adequately.

Having an accurate cost-to-sure estimate is essential for budgeting purposes and for negotiating property transactions. It provides a clear picture of the financial commitment required to bring a property up to desired standards or to mitigate identified risks, enabling stakeholders to make informed decisions about their real estate investments.
